Daybreak has produced a summer newsletter and the leading article is about our Director, Andy Buckland, who has retired from his post:
Farewell from Director Andy Buckland
Dear club members, carers and colleagues; thank you for the privilege of spending seven years in your company. I have enjoyed meeting so many remarkable and inspiring people from each category. It has been so rewarding to work for Daybreak where you can see the real help that the charity provides. All this whilst the local authority and NHS have been cutting back on dementia services and resources.
Daybreak has achieved a great deal in surviving since the County Council cancelled all its contracts. Our wonderful fundraisers have received some large sums recently and so there are grounds to be optimistic about Daybreak’s financial future. We have applied for more large grants but will always need support from the public to keep providing this small but vital support to some of the neediest people in society.
Well done to all the staff and trustees and long may the three brilliant clubs continue and develop.
I will miss you. All good wishes. Andy
